How to watch women's cycling on SBS
The Tour de France LIVE and EXCLUSIVE to SBS begins this year with Women's WorldTour racing and La Course, prime time on Saturday night on SBS. But our coverage of women's cycling doesn't end there. Check out all the drama and excitement we plan to bring you including the first ever women's Paris-Roubaix.

Giro Rosa organisers have announced the 124km second stage of this year's race from Paganico to Arcidosso will feature gravel roads in Cinigiano and Seggiano. 

“The Giro Rosa is the most important event of women's cycling," mayor of Civitella Paganico, Alessandra Biondi said. "This is an unmissable opportunity to make our territory known and told through an international sporting event.

"The medieval village of Paganico, the link between Grosseto and Amiata, will host the start of the second stage of the tour."

 

Organisers have not yet released full details of this year's parcours other than the 16km team time trial on Stage 1 in Tuscany and that the race will travel through central and southern Italy.

This year, SBS will show daily highlights with live coverage expected next year.
